Jordan Melamed is a New York-based writer, director and filmmaker who is a former trader and member of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. He is the son of CME Chairman Emeritus Leo Melamed.[1][2][3]

He is the writer and director of "Futures Past," a movie still in production about the end of the open outcry trading era, his own career and his complicated relationship with his father.[4][5]

Background[edit]

Melamed followed in his father's footsteps and became a floor trader at the CME. He started trading while in law school. He traded for twelve years before turning his attention to filmmaking.

He attended the American Film Institute in Los Angeles where his thesis film, A Corner in Gold, won the Student Emmy for Drama from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and played at Kodak’s Emerging Filmmaker’s Showcase at the Cannes Film Festival.

His first feature was titled "Manic," and starred Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deschanel, and Don Cheadle. It told the story of a violent adolescent placed in a juvenile psychiatric facility against his will. Manic premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, played at Toronto and film festivals worldwide, and was released theatrically by IFC Films.[6][7]
